If you can now buy a website theme for $49 that is actually better than a website you would have paid $49,000 for just a few years ago, where does that leave web designers?
We discussed “Web Design is Dead” and what it means for the web design or online marketing sector as a whole. And I’ve recorded the conversation, because I think you’ll find it illuminating.
I’m doing most of the talking for the first half of this 52-minute discussion, where I present my ideas for the future of my profession, including…
- A new profit-sharing model to replace the old upfront-fees model.
- Scope for massive specialization, made possible by the new global skills marketplace.
- And the need for a new discipline: online marketing strategist.
In the second half, Perry gets to talk, and offers his thoughts on whether this “heaven on earth” scenario could ever be a reality.
